This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at if that is a problem.

Let's get acquainted

In this task, we'll get to know each other a bit.

The purpose of this challenge is to set up global classroom collaborations with secondary classrooms.

The projects are up to you and your partner (we'll talk more about this in subsequent tasks) -- they can be as simple as e-pal programs or as comprehensive as collaborative environmental studies.

For now, let's get to know each other. Post a comment and tell us something about yourself, your school, and your classroom. If you'd like to make a short video to introduce yourself, that would be great! If you have a classroom web site, post a link.
